Students must leave campus 24 hours after their last exam or by Noon on Sunday, May 15, 2016. The halls officially close for maintenance and preparation for summer programs on that weekend. Only graduating seniors and students approved for May Transition Housing are permitted to remain in campus housing past closing.
Vacating requires that you move out, remove all your belongings, (you may not leave your belongings with your roommate), and return your key. The University is unable to provide storage during the summer months. Students not complying with the regulations regarding the vacating of rooms will be subject to both of the following:
- Room occupancy and storage fees. Fees will be charged for belongings left with your roommate.
- Belongings will be moved out of the rooms and the student will assume full responsibility for any losses.
Students are responsible for the following tasks. Failure to complete these tasks could result in charges being assessed to your student account:
- Remove all personal items from the room. Items left in rooms after closing will be disposed of. The University assumes no liability for items left behind.
- Remove bikes from bike racks. Bikes left behind will be removed from the racks.
- Clean your room or apartment to return it to a satisfactory condition. Special cleaning charges begin at $50 for rooms, $175 for apartments and $200 for townhouses.
